Fresh Wedding Hair Idea: Romantic Braids with Flowers

Hair & Beauty

Looking for a chic, fuss-free wedding hairstyle? We love a pretty braid — whether it's a loosely woven boho side braid or a clean-and-polished plait. Looking to take your braid one step further? Consider embellishing your hairstyle with fresh flowers and greenery. Ready to get inspired? Check out these six examples of this modern, elegant, and totally fresh look.

Long & Loose Braid (above): For a romantic, boho look, tuck blossoms throughout a long braid (extensions help here for length and fullness!). Keep the braid loose and wispy for an extra dose of wimsy.

Greenery & Berries: Turn a simple French braid into a striking statement by adding sprigs of fresh greenery and berries to your 'do.

Side Braid with Astrantia: If you've decided on a side braid, have your hairstylist weave some flowers into your hair, like these unique-looking astrantia blossoms.

Fishtail Braid with Greenery: For an intricate-looking fishtail braid, keep it simple by tucking eucalyptus leaves and astilbe at the top of the braid.

Asymmetrical Greenery: Accent your braided hairstyle with a laurel of fresh greenery pinned near the top.

Long Side Braid: A long, side-swept braid is even prettier with the addition of waxflowers and textural elements like these pink pepper berries.
